Still We Seek

The One that can be spoken is not the eternal One,
The name w use for the Named is not the eternal Name,
The nameless is the origin of all the Heavens and Earth
The named is the Mother and Father of myriad things,
Thus, constantly without desire, one observes its essence,
Constantly with desire, one only observes its manifestations,
These two emerge a union together, but differ in their names,
The unity itself is said to be the mystery we all seek,
Mystery of all,mysteries, the door to all wonders,

Drifting Memories

Art and Words to settle my mind

Unity

Hope it can be as hollow as fear,
Hope and fear are both phantoms
Arising from thinking only of the self.
When we don’t see the self as self,
There can nothing for to ever fear,

Create  the world to match your dreams.
Strong be your faith in the unity of all life.
Loving the world as you do your children;
Only then you embrace the majesty of being.

Become all you were created to be,
Traveling this path, together as one…

Stirring It A Bit

  This is a link to a video that provides one of the best presentations of this subject I’ve seen. It’s a lazy Saturday, so give it a watch, while you’re you’re watching allow yourself to try to put aside our natural tendency to ‘judge’ rather than think and consider, looking at our world with a mind open to the relationships you’ve been able to observe throughout our lives. (but probably pushed to the back of your mind to avoid the conflict those observations create within us, just like we most of us do to avoid taking some kind of responsibility for agony shining from the eyes of that poor street person begging along our daily path,)

  Allow yourself to look openly into the possibility of humanity having been breed and specifically trained like various breeds of dogs created at a master’s whim. Look closely at how the structures of the ‘education’ we were raised with might have directed the focus of our outlooks, attitudes,  and personalities as adults, even the possibility that we were designed to bend us into what the few need us to be in order to further and sustain their own  control agendas. ‘They’ve’  had thousands of years to prefect ‘their’ techniques and skills for this. Things like “My Country is the Greatest Country, My God is the only TRUE God, so if you don’t believe ‘Right’ then you must be taught the ‘Truth’ until you believe ‘Right’ or be eliminated for you heresy, The rest of all life on our world means nothing compare to Man, because only Man was created in ‘God’s’ image, My countries War is a duty I must support quite simply because only we know the ‘truth’ and so you have to be wrong and stopped permanently, or You have resources you aren’t intelligent enough to use properly and I need them so I have a ‘God Given Right’ to invade your country and take them, killing you all if you even dare to resist.” Obviously, unfortunately I could go on and on 😦 

  By now, even the few of you that have bothered to read this much of my ‘rant’ are probably thinking I’m talking about some kind of conspiratorial theory crap or something but I’m not. Allow yourselves to finally wake up, think for yourselves, and dream again of exactly what a ‘heaven’ we could create right here right now, if only we can get together as one, with mutual respect, acceptance, and caring. Embracing with admiration the gifts of small differences we have as the blessings they truly are. We can still be all we could be, as one within the unity of existence.

Darwin’s Great Discoveries and Today

Learning From What Was

I strive to learn, to listen, to feel, to see,
Hear the whispered magic in the winds,
Feel the love enraptured my very core,

To embrace the gentle murmur of the tree filled the forest,
Ever holding in your heart their cool shade they provide,
Behold the colors of rainbow in the beacon of flowers,

Hear the chattering of the butterflies flitting about them in peace.
Contrasted by the boisterous scolding squirrels in their ever running work.
Hear the magical whispers of the earth mother drifting across this world,

The heavenly sigh of the dusty dry ground as the first rain drops fall,
Feel the joy in the clouds as they drift across creation,
Laugh with the noisy cries of baby bird as its mother comes home,

Take pleasure in the chance meeting of a new friend,
Share the pain of the losing the wisest of old ones now gone,
Let this world excite you, stir your soul with new-found awareness,

The startling cascading rumble of windblown stones rattling on the roof,
Heart stopping strike of lighting and thunder in an otherwise clear sky,
The unintentional slip down a muddy bank into the cold clear waters below,

Cuddle in the rapture at the howling of the wolves on the mountaintop,
Cry out in the passion invoked by the sunset’s last gleams,
With your abundance of patience, for all things living or not,

This is the only true secret, and with this I find success cannot fail,
Forever embracing the simple offers of life, embracing each instant of time,
Holding sacred all now surrounding me, while letting not one moment be lost,
For this journey is made only from my single steps combined,

Here’s a challenge as such,

A progression of images, the beginning named as conceived. having reached, maturity, the inevitable decline, nearing the end, and finally having ended. I’m really interested in reading what meaningful writings these may bring out from all of you Set yourselves free, allow your feeling to flow though your pens, and share the core of yourselves that special part our you to help bring enlightenment and inspiration to the rest of us. Come on now, put a little effort in it, took my 2 and 1/2 days to do the images.

Walking the Shining Path

We all desire a better tomorrow. A World made better, more peaceful and tranquil, with which to raise our children and live our lives. If you want to make a real difference in this world we all share, there are steps to learn to take. First, learn to be optimistic. Don’t allow yourself to be depressed, frustrated and disillusioned, all the time. Know that you are doing what you can and that it counts. Every single solitary thing that we each do and say and, most especially think, really does count. More than you can ever believe. Some might argue that we don’t have any choice in this upside down dangerous world and that we can’t affect what will happen. But even if we can’t immediately alter the course of human events on the world level, we can certainly create change in our own lives and in all the lives we touch, (and this is really where it all starts, yourself,) and knowing our thoughts are the seeds of that change.
Use your thoughts wisely. Understand their power. Thoughts have a tendency to become their physical equivalent. This is one of the fundamental laws of the universe. Another one is the Law of Attraction, which states that ‘like attracts like,’ positive to positive, negative to negative. Because it is consciousness that creates reality, the kind of consciousness you hold, your vibration if you will, actually creates the kind of life you’re living. So our first order of business must be to stay positive. Hold and entertain only positive possibilities. Teach yourself to imagine only affirmative alternatives. Surround yourself with wholly uplifting, life-affirming people and influences. Align yourself solely with the greater good so that your actions will be born of only the finest of your best intentions.
Remind yourself that far away, there in the sunshine, are your highest aspirations. You may not reach them, but you can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead. I have been haunted recently by the words written by a Protestant minister after the downfall of the Nazi regime. “First they came for the gays. I am not gay, so I didn’t say anything. Then they came for the Gypsies. I am not a Gypsy, so I didn’t say anything. Then they came for the Jews. I am not a Jew, so I didn’t say anything. Then they came for the Catholics. I am not a Catholic, so I didn’t say anything. When they finally came for me, there was no one left to say anything.”
Be bold.
Make a statement.
Make a stand.
Make a difference.
In light of the widespread oppression, manipulation, intimidation that surrounds us today, you most certainly need to say something. You need, in fact, to talk to everyone who you meet, actually engage on a human level with those who you encounter as you make it through our day. Not just your families, friends and colleagues or those of presumed like-minds, but the shoe repair guy, the waitress at the coffee shop, the post office clerk, the bag boy at the super market.
If you ignore, exploit or patronize those people whose lives intersect with yours, how can you expect international relations to be more civilized? You need to “Walk your talk” wherever you go, whatever you do, remembering always, that by doing so you do make a difference. Let yourself be a sun, sending your caring energy out into the world, shedding light wherever you go. You never know who you might touch, or what a difference you may make with the radiance of your smile and warmth of your friendship.
Walk in peace and beauty,

Tao, First Verse Explanations

The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named is not the eternal Name.
The un-namable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin of all particular things.
Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.
Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source.

This source has been called darkness. The Darkness within darkness, un-seeable without first having light, and the light only shining from within the darkness. The gateway leading to all understanding.

In that we a part of it we therefore cannot know the whole of it, at least until our return.

The information and principles of organization imagined in ideal form in the Metaverse are more perfect and complete than we can ever articulate, therefore beyond our means of description. In our driving need to know the un-knowable we create focuses for our belief through adherence to definitions created by man.
Pure conscious awareness without time and space exists outside our universe.

Abstract thought on the part of pure consciousness defined creation prior to the Big Bang. In our universe, we are only able to recognize objects and concepts we have named.

When we set down our meme bundles we are freed from personal preference. In that clear state we may perceive the workings of the universal model and our role in it. Remaining attached to our memes obscures the inflowing Metaversal patterns and keeps us tethered to our familiar material and relational patterns.

Pure, undifferentiated consciousness dwells in the unformed darkness of the Metaverse(The Metaverse is a collective virtual shared space, created by the convergence of virtually enhanced physical reality and physically persistent virtual space.) The thought patterns that produce light and matter arise out of the Metaverse, but the manifestations of these patterns takes place within our universe. The portal into our universe is the gateway to all understanding.

Just as what we perceive as a ‘Black Hole’ funnelling the matter of everything it can trap within its gravity well, a well that spans areas greater that our own small galaxy, funnelling from this plain to another, thereby creating ‘existence’ with that matter within the other plain. The premise of the first verse is to say there is that there is one plain that creates all the other plains, that bonds all the others together, creating the new even it accepts the return of the old. All of this implies that existence comes from non-existence, or as we refer to it ‘source, Allah, God, etc.’

Begin by considering how ὑπάρχειν (hyparkein) comes to be used as a synonym for εἶναι (einai) in its “existential” use, and then to follow the history of existence as the Latin rendering of ὑπάρχειν in this sense. Either topic could supply a separate monograph.

First consider how ὑπάρχειν (hyparkein) comes to be used as a synonym for εἶναι (einai) in its “existential” use, and then to follow the history of existence as the Latin rendering of ὑπάρχειν in this sense. Either topic could also supply a separate monograph. ὑπάρχειν originally means “to make a beginning”, “to take the initiative”, “to take the first step (in doing so-and-so)”, e.g. to begin a guest-friendship (in the earliest occurrence of the verb, Odyssey 24.286) or to initiate hostilities (…)

Apart from this technical use in logic and grammar, the most common meaning of ὑπάρχειν in later Greek seems to be that which we render as ‘to exist’ or “‘to be real’. (This occasionally leads to rather ludicrous confusion, when a late commentator can no longer distinguish between Aristotle’s technical sense and his own ordinary use of ὑπάρχειν.

The contemporary attempts to determine in a purely logical way the nature of existence, by constructing a logic of existence(1) or a free logic which makes “no assumptions about the existence of the purported designata of its terms, general or singular, seems to be still premature as long as the problem of existence in its philosophical implications is not adequately resolved. Historically, there are three main problems in logic involving a conception of existence, which clearly show that the logical problem of existence has a philosophical background influencing the “logic of existence” in its technical sense.

All of this brings us right back to our search for reason, and the concept of the Metaverse wherein one great plain bonds, creates, and recovers all others in a never ending eternal cycle of ‘being.’ Returning us to ”

This brings us back to “In that we a part of it we cannot know the whole of it, at least until our return.”

Life

We can become.

A lifetime of seeking, of learning,
New life bursting inquisitive, need to know,
This bond of knowledge, passed old to new,
All the old wisdom to be learned and added to,

This journey of humanity, if we but stay the course,
Can we put aside ego, strife, and violence,
Can we return to respect and equality,
Can we become as meant to be,

One family, brothers, and sisters,
One quest together and whole,
Return to our part in creation,
Can we respect and honor,

Can we be together…
